"The provsion of extra-curricular clubs and enrichment activities is outstanding". Independent Schools Inspectorate.
At Moor Allerton we want children to experience more than a normal academic curriculum to ensure every child has opportunities to shine. By providing a diverse education it allows individuals to develop personally and find areas that they can achieve.
Gifted and Talented children can find areas where they can be stretched to reach the highest possible levels.
Throughout their time in nursery (age 3 to 4) and reception (age 4 to 5), children follow the curriculum of the Early Years Foundation Stage, which we enhance with additional opportunities and specialist teaching in music, dance, drama and PE. Classroom computers and interactive whiteboards allow even our youngest children to benefit from the use of ICT in all areas of their learning.
Children are encouraged to develop their communication and social skills through a combination of structured play and more formal learning, with a caring atmosphere ensuring that they feel secure. An emphasis on outdoor activities helps their physical development, while creativity is promoted through arts and crafts, role-play and music making.
As they progress through nursery, children are introduced to early literacy and numeracy concepts. These are then strengthened and deepened during the reception year to provide a firm foundation for future learning. We aim to discover and nurture each child’s individual talents, carefully monitoring their progress to ensure that they continually receive an appropriate level of challenge.
